Paul Robinson 8b flash and v15/16 Repeat

by Dougald MacDonald Paul Robinson has flashed Nagual, a ?hard V13? at Hueco Tanks, Texas. Robinson ?waited two years? to try Nagual, hoping for a successful flash of the 45-degree overhanging wall in the East Spur Maze. The problem was established in 2003 by Fred Nicole and is considered to be a bit harder now because of a broken hold. Only one other person has reported flashing a V13 problem: Britain´s James Pearson, who recently flashed his third problem given 8B (V13), Schule des Lebens in Switzerland. Later, Paul Robinson has made the second ascent of Terremer (V15/V16), the hardest boulder problem at Hueco Tanks. Switzerland´s Fred Nicole established Terremer at the beginning of 2006. The problem links Diaphanous Sea (V12) and Terre de Sienne (V14), two other Nicole problems on Hueco´s North Mountain.Read the full report by Dougald MacDonald at ( Source: Climbing magazine )
